Hi All,
My 98 makes a very odd "clink clink" sound sometimes on a cold start (engine not warmed up). Its a high pitched metallic "clink clink" sound. It seems to come from the rear of the car, although it is hard to tell. There are only a couple of "clinks", then it stops.

Anyone else notice this? For me this has been happening ever since I got the car (I'm the original owner). I took it to the dealer, with a recording of the sound even, and they were stumped.

There doesn't seem to be any side affects, its just odd.

Thanks,
Pat
